    Is it arrogant to believe that your religion is the one and only religion ? Is it arrogant to believe that all other belief systems outside of the Christian one are part of the Devils plan to trick the hopeless sinner into Hell ? Is it arrogant to think that your special Book is the one with all the answers and that all other special Books are that of the Devil ? Is it somewhat arrogant to believe that if you don't believe a certain way you must burn in Hell for all of eternity ?

    Depends on the justification for each of those assertions.

    Depends on your definition of "arrogant." According to God, arrogance is any authority set up against Him.

    Yes and no. He did tell us through indirect agents, otherwise known as divine revelation.

    A secondhand party providing hearsay from a hypothetical source. Think that'll hold up in court?

    it's not what you think or believe , it's how you express those thoughts and beliefs to others that can be arrogance.
